I will very much appreciate if some one out there would think of helping me.
This is what had happened with my HP-UX box.
When I was developing a project for a client, one of my programs
accidentally ended up modifying the permissions lists of the root file system. I was planning to recover from this situation but unfortunately some one from our team rebooted the machine and now it won't come up. Needless to say that we haven't done any backup for quite a long time. So we need to recover our disks.
It just occurred to me that if I can put one of our core disk containing all our projects onto the other hp-ux machine and mount it over there I might indeed be able to get our data back. But unfortunately the other machine is showing this disk as unused. Now I have no clue of what to do next !!!.
Well I would like to hear from some one whether can
1. I recover the data on this disk
2. my root file system permissions are completely in a mess. so my system won't start up . can i recover from this situation without re-installing.
thanks in advance
